Compatibility Regarding Big Sur and Apple Silicon-Powered Mac Computers

November 12, 2020


The public release of Big Sur is imminent/now available and the first Mac computers using Apple Silicon have been announced as well. The transition to Apple Silicon processors will be important in the near future of technology, having amongst others a big impact on software development under macOS.

As it stands we need to inform you, our loyal customer base, that neither our software nor our hardware products are currently supporting new Apple Silicon computers (running Big Sur with or without Rosetta 2) until further notice. Our initial compatibility tests with Big Sur are underway but will focus on Mac computers utilizing Intel processor architecture for the time being. Further details will be published as tests progress.

Looking forward, Steinberg software and hardware will support Apple Silicon-powered Mac computers but as yet it is too early to provide more information.
